Change a background image when category changes


Recommended Posts

Ok. Here's what I've done on my index.php page at the top above the

require('includes/application_top.php'); I've got this with some help from others by the way..

Like this

$exploded_str = explode('_', $cPath);
$header_image = $exploded_str[0];
$header_image = "home";


Then I've created a directory called headerimages and I've named my category images based on my cPath # ie cPath 1 =1.jpg, 1_17.jpg, etc. I've got my home page image name home.jpg. This makes it so I can call different images as a background for each category page, in the upper left corner of my STS Template with this php code as a background for that table..

<? echo DIR_WS_HEADER_IMAGES . "/$header_image.jpg"; ?>


I've defined the DIR_WS_HEADER_IMAGES in the config.php file.


Now my question is.. Is there a better way to do it? And also is there a way to change the background image dynamically for other pages like shipping.php, etc? And if so, how? Please help..


You can see this working on this site to some extent, http://www.sugarcreektreasures.com/
